"We've owned everything from GM, Ford, BMW, Volvo, Mazda, Toyota, and Nissan. This little C-Class Mercedes is by far the best of the bunch. So much that when we needed to replace our other car we turned to Mercedes. My 2007 C-Class starts first time every time and still drives and rides like a new car. None of the others drove and rode like a new car after the first 2-3 years. We cannot comment regarding the BMW because we didn't have it long enough. We traded it on the second Mercedes two years into it. In eight years we have had to replace one ignition coil and have the sun roof track repaired. Other than routine maintenance, that's it. No leaks, nothing. Highly recommended."
"I had the 2004 car from 2009 on and have replaced: alternator, fuel pump, sway bar links, cam position sensor, from axels (boots), rear shocks, alarm system, rear suspension bushing. On top of that a spring is broken and it can probably use a new valve gasket.
Hey, a lot of thing go on old cars, but if you buy this car and it's like 6 or more years old.. keep a lot of money aside for parts and labor!"
Cons: "None. I have had zero problems with this car."
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"The only thing NOT to like about this car is that you cannot drive it on street roads as fast as you are going to want to, because it rides and handles like a dream at high speeds! HA! Seriously. And the seat warmers are awesome! The sound system fabulous. What's not to like?"
Cons: "cup holders holds nothing, and cramped space"

"Granted my vehicle has a ton of milage on it, but I have had it for about 50,000 miles. Granted the car was ahead of its time, but now its just eh. I'm a bigger guy and the seats are way too small for me. Also about 1500 miles after buying the vehicle the power seats witch were amazing turned into a battery killer. If I let the car sit for to long with the seats plugged in the car battery would die. Also the car has a cup holder that is useless to say the least. Not even a medium sized soft drink fits in the holder. Personally if you are thinking about driving this vehicle I would say to look for something better and more reliable. Yes the vehicle was ahead of its time, but thats the thing it was. If you want to spend the money on this vehicle I would tell you to save the money and buy something newer, and better."
